Canton, Ohio – The Las Vegas Raiders faced off against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Hall of Fame Game. Which players had their stocks increase?
The Raiders were in Canton on Thursday as the team played Jacksonville in the NFL’s first scrimmage game of the season.
Las Vegas started quarterback Jarrett Stidham, who led the Silver and Black deep into Jaguar’s territory on both the first and second drives of the game for the Raiders. Unfortunately, the team wasn’t able to cap off either drive, resulting in a total of 6 points.
After some back-and-fourth defensive showings, Las Vegas would get the ball back, and Stidham would lead a drive downfield that ended in the quarterback running in for six. At this point, the Raiders held a 13-0 lead, looking unstoppable in the process.
Later on, in the fourth quarter, Chase Garbers led the Silver and Black into Jaguars territory. The undrafted free agent completed 66% of his passes, grabbing 35 passing yards. The drive would end on a pitch to running back Austin Walters, crossing the plane and giving the Raiders a 27-13 lead. This was the final score of the ballgame, and Josh McDaniels left Canton a winner.
McDaniels wasn’t the only winner on Thursday, though. There were a few Raiders fighting for jobs that saw their stock skyrocket after this contest. Let’s get into who those players are.
